exasperated? absolutely i am, this is entirely unnecessary, we have a situation where john boehner, the speaker of the house puts a bill out on the floor, at current funding levels so we can then negotiate on a real budget that allows us to stop negotiating from crisis to crisis, it would pass. the only thing that is stopping it, is that john boehner right now has not been willing to say no to a faction of the republican party that are willing to burn the house down because of an obsession over my health care initiative. >> the president there is continuing to point out that while the shutdown is often described as a fight between democrats and republicans, it is just as much if not more so a fight between speaker john boehner and a fight between his own republican party. the idea of the tea party, any legislator being powerful in the traditional sense is kind of archaic, what boehner was before was an institutionalist, he was first elected to congress in 1990 and has been there ever since. he has risen through the ranks, climbed back, fallen again, and finally reached the top. when he
